Some of this stuff is probably basic and can be answered by anybody. So please answer if you can.
I've been using Elementary for a few months and like it. Unfortunately it is a trailing edge OS instead of a leading edge OS. I really don't want a leading edge OS but I do want newer versions of LibreOffice and some other programs. I don't like the file manager in Elementary.
I am using CentOS 5.8, where the version of glibc is 2.5. Are there any plans to make available newer versions of glibc (say 2.12, which is the version on CentOS 6) for CentOS 5.8? Quite a lot of t... [by terence]
We use Fedora 8 (an Amazon EC2 Public Image) for some of our servers. I see that Fedora is at version 20 now, and Fedora 8 is from around 2006/7. What confuses me is that these servers were installed in 2009, so even then this was quite an old version. Does Fedora 8 have longer support?
Every time a new version of fedora comes out I tend to spend a fair bit of time uploading the same (but newer) versions of software onto the host. Some of this software comes from the common fedora repositories - others come from other sites that have fedora rooms. This is quite a manual process. Is there any software out there that helps with this? Thanks.
I want to install Fedora on my computer with a netinstall, but it seems that the kernel doesn’t support my ethernet chip (Intel I218V). I tested Ubuntu 14.04 and Arch Linux and the ethernet chip worked (both have a newer kernel version).
Our computation cluster runs a very old version of CentOS, with an old Kernel (2.6.18) and, of course, old libs and binaries. Because updating the whole thing requires a lot of work on all the nodes, this is not an option.
I am trying to compile and use a program that requires C++11 and therefore newer versions of gcc (and/or clang).
The Fedora Project has a very colorful history of naming its distributions, but that will come to an end with Fedora 21. The Fedora developers have decided that it was time to end the naming policy and process of their Fedora operating system.
